The location of this hotel is just perfect. It sits right on the entrance to the amazing park of Tikal. We were able to do both a night trip to Tikal during a full moon night and the usual sunrise trip everyone takes without getting up too early and taking any bus early in the morning.
The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was good but the hours of the hot water are very limited. Other than that, the room is very limitedly equipped and quite expensive. There is a restaurant in the hotel perimeter which is also a bit expensive. Dinner was okay, breakfast is okay. Also, note that the breakfast is served till late (about eleven) and not as stated in the signs of the hotel (till nine).
Internet service is available but is also a bit expensive.
All in all it is a good place to stay, mainly because of the great location and despite of the high price.
